            Bug ID: 257140
           Summary: mail/thunderbird and www/firefox install two
                    executables
           Product: Ports & Packages
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: Individual Port(s)
          Assignee: gecko_at_FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: mi_at_FreeBSD.org

             Flags: maintainer-feedback?(gecko_at_FreeBSD.org)

Both ports install a pair of identical executables:
${PREFIX}/lib/${port}/${port} and ${PREFIX}/lib/${port}/${port}-bin. For
example:

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  532976 Jul 12 13:28 /opt/lib/firefox/firefox
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  532976 Jul 12 13:28 /opt/lib/firefox/firefox-bin

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  708872 Apr 18 22:47 /opt/lib/thunderbird/thunderbird
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  708872 Apr 18 22:47
/opt/lib/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin

If one of them is not actually used, then it should not be installed at all. If
both are used (due to bugs in upstream scripts), then the two incarnations
ought to be made a hard link.
